Reading Veganism

The Monstrous Vegan, 1818 to Present

Emelia Quinn

Oxford English Monographs

  • Responds to a growing sense of veganism's urgent relevance to current ethical and environmental debates
  • Proposes the parameters of a new field, vegan theory, and establishes the intersection between veganism and existing fields of study including queer theory, animal studies, ecocriticism, and postcolonial studies
  • Contributes to our understanding of the vegan and vegetarian cultures of thought circulating within the Romantic and late-Victorian periods
